        Mitch(Salem) posted that as a result of him traveling he may be slow to respond to questions for the time being. If you note on the front page there’s some Toronto film festival reviews from Mitch. You may have to be a bit patient for responses for the time being. It may be worth reminding Mitch if you see him respond to someone else on another topic that this request is here.
